This week’s MMOsite Cosplay Spotlight shines on Sa’irai Cosplay, a fairly new cosplayer from overseas that is also a League of Legends fan. I spoke with Sa’irai about how she got interested in cosplay and found out something many people don’t know about her.
So where are you from?
I am from the Netherlands.
How did you first get into cosplaying?
I haven't been cosplaying for that long! I started last December, actually. I got into it because I have been a gamer for about seven years now and many people online talked about cosplayers. I went to search for it and decided to go to a convention and try it out for myself!

Miss Fortune, I think. After that is probably Katarina.
Which champions have you cosplayed thus far?
Only Red Card Katarina so far but many to come!
What other champs do you want to cosplay?
I'm planning on cosplaying Janna and Star Guardian Jinx very soon.
What's the number one champion that you HATE being matched up against in LoL?
Probably Sivir or LeBlanc because I always lose track of who the real one is and end up killing her replica.
Favorite video games other than LoL?
Aion, Blade and Soul, and Black Desert Online.
Ah so you're an MMORPG player then? What about World of Warcraft?
Yes I am. I have tried World of Warcraft but I didn't like it as much. Probably due the graphics but it has been a long time so that may have changed.

Props are the biggest challenge to me right now. I'm always so afraid to start on them because I’m worried I’ll ruin it and lose money on materials.
What are some of your hobbies outside of gaming and cosplay?
I love drawing, reading, and swimming.
Tell me something about yourself not many people know but fellow nerds might find interesting.
I'm actually a sports person too! I don't only game, I love to go to the gym and run. It kind of balances out being extremely lazy and gaming so much.
Anything else you'd like to add?
If you want to get into cosplay, totally do it! Watch Youtube videos and go to a convention near you at least once. It is a lot of fun and a complete new experience. If you have any questions about it you can totally reach my Facebook page Sa'irai Cosplay and ask me anything!
I hope you all have a great day!
